The organisers of the annual Children's Media Conference are launching a new event, the The CMC Rights Exchange, which will take place in London later this year.
The event will bring together literary agents, children's TV, animation and film companies and children's interactive, games and app producers.
"As the old model of licensing published content is being superseded by new forms of partnership or service delivery models, there needs to be a forum to understand, explore and negotiate those new relationships," said Greg Childs, editorial director of the CMC.
Speakers have yet to be confirmed for the Rights Exchange, which will take place on November 7. The original, annual, CMC event takes place in Sheffield in July.
